Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Paper Smooches Baby Birds 2 Ways
These whimsical birds are so cute and lend themselves well with a bold design. I used bright watercolors from the Yana Smakula & Simon Says Stamp, Daniel Smith dot chart. Don’t let these convenient swatches of color fool you; these dots go a long way! I colored all of the birds (and have used them before previously), and there is still quite a bit leftover!
You’ll also notice that these cute feathered friends are decked out in party accessories! I pulled a few images from the Simon Says Stamp Cuddly Critters Accessories set to give them each party hats and even a bow tie! It’s fun to mix and match sets to create amazing scenes and accents on your cards.
Speaking of accents, my birds are all surrounded by these colorful and fun Balloons die cuts (also from Paper Smooches). I may have got carried away with die cutting, as I ended up with a TON of balloons, but parties call for extra balloons right?
Be sure to check out the video above to see these two cards come together! I had a blast creating them and I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did making! Enjoy your Monday, I will be back soon with more inspiration to share!
